Meditation Class Contact: Dave/Merryn  (Phone: 0161 861 0153)
secretary: John  (Phone: 07988700524)
Notes and Events:

Samatha means calm. Samatha meditation is an effective but gentle way of training the mind to develop inner strength and freedom from turmoil, leading on to clarity and understanding. This path from calm to insight was followed by the Buddha himself, and is a central tradition of Buddhist meditation. There are many kinds of Samatha meditation techniques: this one is based on attention to the breath, a subject which is said to be suitable for all types of people.
 
By regular daily practice the chattering, unruly mind gradually becomes calmer and develops clarity. The way our mind works becomes less confusing to us and we begin to understand the habits of mind that hold us back from happiness and freedom. We become kinder to ourselves and those around us. Meditation is a practical matter: increased awareness brings an ability to make the most of ourselves in our daily lives.
 
Classes for beginners are held at 2pm and 8pm on Mondays and at 8pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

Weekday evening classes begin at 7.50 for an 8 pm start. Feel free to join a class at any time.

Classes run throughout the year during school term times and you may join a class at any time during the term. A particular teacher takes the class on a particular day of the week, and it is recommended to try to keep to the same class. Please arrive in good time.

Mindfulness and Zen 
 
Mindfulness
 
The practice of mindfulness is a simple technique – though it's not necessarily easy. It involves a steady focus on living, breathing reality: what's happening here and now. This can help you learn to open up the mind and slowly gain a sense of balance and freedom. Mindfulness training involves sitting in meditation regularly. Our group meets weekly on Tuesday mornings and Wednesday evenings, meditating for 45 minutes or so. We normally, but not always, meditate using the breath as the focus of our attention. The aim of the group is to help beginners learn to meditate and to provide company and support for those who are more experienced. We also meet occasionally for half-day retreats, generally on Saturdays.

You are very welcome to join us, either on our regular Tuesdays and Wednesdays or on the retreats.

Notes and Events:

The Zen practice of Musang am

Living our daily life in mindfulness, practicing meditation with the community and working cultivating peace in our mind. This is, very shortly, the Zen practice of Musang am.

In harmony with the deep truth according to which there is nothing to attain, the practitioners are trained to live in the present moment without attachment (Dhyana), to realize the pure mind stillness (Samadhi) and to grow their Bodhichitta (compassionate mind of enlightenment).

Practicing like that, we live in simplicity each day of our life.


Muttodaya - Forest Monastery

Address: Kloster Muttodaya Herrnschrot 50 95236 Stammbach Germany

Teacher: Ajahn Cattamalo Bhikkhu  
Notes and Events:

Stammbach is a municipality in the district of Hof in Bavaria in Germany.

The forest monastery is a dwelling place for monks, novices and ordinands. Guests who want to participate in the monastic life and are willing to adapt to the routine and discipline are welcome as the monastic community sees fit.

The monastery is not some kind of spiritual hostel or guesthouse, nor a retreat centre, a seminar centre or a temple serving a particular cultural purpose.

The name “Muttodaya” means Liberated Heart in Pali, the language of early Buddhism. It is a poetic expression of our goal that we are trying to reach. The monks follow the standards of the forest tradition as we can still find it in the Theravada countries (Sri Lanka, Thailand, Burma, Laos, Cambodia). It is not fixed on a specific lineage or a particular master. It should give an opportunity for those who are seriously interested in practising on the basis of the Dhamma-Vinaya.

Notes and Events:

The Newmarket Meditation Group (NMG) meets regularly at The Old Stable House Retreat Centre in Newmarket (Suffolk, England). This fine venue, standing in its own secluded grounds, provides ideal facilities for walking and sitting meditation sessions and overnight accommodation for weekend retreats.
   
The group welcomes newcomers to meditation as well as old hands. The Newmarket Meditation Group is run by Richard Prangnell and Rosie Hitchins, who are both experienced meditators and at different times they have both been Resident Lay Managers at Amaravati Buddhist Monastery.

Even though the system followed is the same method as taught by the Buddha, the NMG is open to followers of any faith (or none). The NMG offers all comers the opportunity to simply give authentic, Buddhist style meditation a try. If all it does is help to reduce your stress level, then surely that is a positive result!
 
NMG sessions are invariably informal and easy-going. There is plenty of comfortable seating and lots of space for floor sitters (if your knees can take the strain!) and wheelchairs.

Meetings last about 2 hours with time divided equally between walking meditation, sitting meditation, group discussion and listening to a talk by a meditation master.
 
Contact details: Richard Prangnell.
